This was a grand prize winner in a recipe contest cookbook I found. It is yummy and a great substitute for potato casserole. It can easily be made ahead. It goes well with beef, pork, chicken and fish. I have made this many times and it always gets rave reviews.

This dish is basically a cheese and salt delivery vehicle, which is GREAT NEWS for the low-carbers in our household! Seriously, it was delicious. I added 2 cups of spinach toward the end of the steaming time with the celery root. I also grated in the zest of a lemon. I omitted the butter and sour cream and green onions. It was awesome. It won't win any beauty contests, but it tastes great. Maybe a few spigs of parsley and some lemon slices would appropriately gussy it up!

This was an interesting dish. The celery root looked like potatoes but had a fresher taste. Next time I make this dish, I will decrease the cream cheese by 1/2. It was a little too rich for me but my husband and children loved it.
